About the Book:
A suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker


After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she’s getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky…if only she wasn’t too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone-even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she’ll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.


For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called “The Recluse” confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he’s misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God’s gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there’s always more to someone than meets the eye.


Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County.
My Thoughts:
I hadn’t read a book “for fun” for awhile and I looked forward to reading this one.
Hannah’s family does not communicate well and secrets and accusations and assumptions swirl all while Hannah tries to gain control of her life after being stalked.
She makes a friend with the neighbor and tries to settle into their new community but strange things keep happening.
Is she losing her mind or did her stalker find her?
It’s an enjoyable read and the author writes her story well. The only thing and it is a picky one in a way but I kept thinking about it so I’m sharing it.
In chapter 17, the story is dated August 3 and it talks about the last chill in the weather was past and more flowers were blooming and Hannah loved the tulips and daffodils and pointed out a patch of pink daffodils………August and daffodils and tulips don’t particularly go together. Hopefully it was a proofreading error that just got missed!
